Prosecution evidence in the slaying of Mingo County Sheriff Eugene Crum includes the suspect's mental health records.
The Charleston Gazette reported that Mingo County Prosecutor Michael Sparks disclosed a list of evidence in the case against Tennis Maynard last week.
The evidence includes orders of involuntary hospitalizations from Williamson Memorial Hospital, Logan-Mingo Mental Health Clinic and Highland Hospital in Charleston.
Maynard's family has said he has mental health problems stemming from exposure to harmful chemicals and injuries while working at an Alabama mine in 2007.
The Delbarton resident is charged in state court with murder, attempted first-degree murder and fleeing. He also faces federal firearms charges.
Crum was fatally shot April 3 while sitting in his cruiser in downtown Williamson.
